Comment on Tie between ALS and Genetic Mutations by sierramiller

In regards to the noncoding DNA, I would look up the ENCODE project. It is an offshoot of the Human Genome Project that shows significant amounts of noncoding DNA that scientists and researchers have long considered junk actually has effects on gene expression, translation, and many other cellular functions. As opposed to the 2% of DNA previously considered important, this study shows that at least 20% of DNA is vital.
